Study: ND among states with low prevalence of heart disease


North Dakota doesn’t do too bad in terms of states with the highest incidence of heart disease.

24/7 Wall St. culled data from the Centers for Disease Control and ranked the states in terms of prevalence of cardiovascular disease, 1 being the worst, 50 being the best.

North Dakota ranks 32nd with 6.6 percent of the population identified as having some form of cardiovascular disease.

Minnesota and Montana fare better than North Dakota. Minnesota comes in at 47 with a 5.8 percent rate while Montana is at 41 percent with a 6.2 percent rate.

South Dakota reports at 7.2 percent cardiovascular disease prevalence, putting it ahead of North Dakota at 22.
